Oh yes, I agree that is what he meant.
I posted the document because it's an interesting 'pro' viewpoint and stresses the importance of proper installation. Good 'food for thought'.
Personally I feel my refrigerator will work a lot better with the mods I have made. Not sure how much better but there is no doubt in my mind it will be better. It's wimpy in our NW marine environment ... I'm sure it performed better when properly mounted and vented at the factory test facility.
Interesting point in the document is that a fan is not a guarantee of improvement. If you don't have the proper chimney the fan pulls air through the wrong place (where it's easier) and not cooling the condenser.
Keeping that in mind I have worked today on smoother air flow and any fan(s) will be mounted in a location that cannot disturb airflow around the condenser when it's turned off.
The condenser cooling is the key, I'll be posting some great descriptive pix I found.
